If it's the driveshaft u-joint then you have 2 clips on each u-joint to remove. It's easier to work on if you pull the whole driveshaft. There's c-clips on top of 2 of the caps that you can remove with needle nose pliers. then tap the u-joint loose from one side to the next to get the driveshaft out. Put the driveshaft in a vise or on something sturdy and tap the u-joint from side to side to get the other 2 caps that are pressed in from the outside off of the u-joint to remove it from the drive shaft. Then pretty much reverse those directions to re-install the u-joint. Be carefull not to lose any of the bearings under the caps of the new u-joints. You can use masking tape to hold the caps on while you work with it. Hope this helps

My girlfriend has a 2003 ford explorer. As she is


If this vehicle has an independent rear suspension /rear wheel drive then the click noise most likely will be from a failing cv joint of the axle shaft.

Hi im tray ing to put me self a universal joing for de drive shaff cant u send me how to doit


  • Lift the rear end of the Explorer with a floor jack. Place jack stands underneath the rear axle, by the leaf spring perches and lower the Explorer onto the stands. Pull the floor jack out of the way. mark both ends of the shaft for reinstalation.

  • 2

    Crawl under the rear end and unbolt the universal joint retaining straps from the rear differential yoke.

  • 3

    Pull the drive shaft and universal joint away from the rear differential yoke by hand.

  • 4

    Remove the retaining rings that hold the universal joint into the drive shaft with needle-nose pliers.

  • 5

    Support the end of the drive shaft on a jack stand and place the socket extension against the universal joint cap in the drive shaft yoke. Tap the socket extension with the dead blow hammer until the universal joint cap comes out of the yoke.

  • 6

    Clean the sockets in the drive shaft yoke with the tip of a pocket screwdriver to remove any built up road dirt or other gunk.

  • 7

    Remove two of the caps from the opposite ends of the replacement universal joint. Be careful to keep the bearings in the caps.

  • 8

    Position the replacement universal joint in the drive shaft yoke and put the cap on the outside. Use the socket extension and dead blow hammer to tap the cap through the yoke far enough to expose the retaining ring groove. Put the retaining ring on that side with the needle-nose pliers. Repeat this for the other cap.

  • 9

    Move the drive shaft back up to the differential yoke, line up the new universal joint with the differential yoke and reinstall the universal joint retaining straps with the wrench. Lower the rear end off the jack stands with the floor jack.

    Replacing 92 Explorer right rear signal bulb


    laurbeee,

    As I have just seen this post I may be late in answering.

    1. Open the hatch and look for the two screws on top of the tailight.
    2. Take these out with a No.3 Phillips head screwdriver.
    3. Pull on the tailight gently outward as the plastic inserts are what holds the lens in the body.
    4. Locate the lamp for replacement and twist the lamp socket out of the lens.
    5. Replace the bulb with the new one making sure to leave it clean of any oils from your hands. Twist the socket back into the lens.
    6. Reasemble the lens back into the body and replace screws.

    How do I fix the rear the ball joint on a 2004


    yes you can fix it and it is easy. i just finished doing the job and it took me under 3 hours. rent the tool from (ball joint presser) from a local auto parts place. make sure you get the kit with a lot of accessories. you dont have to take off the control arm. once you initially unseat it it moves out easily. you might have to readjust the tool if it bottoms out.
